During a standard visit, Andrea, our hygienist will perform a thorough cleaning. She will also provide services such as x-rays, periodontal charting, and oral cancer screenings on a regular basis. Dr. Murphy will then provide a complete exam and answer any questions you might have.
Your cleaning visit is an opportunity for you to discuss any of your dental concerns. Between visits, please remember that brushing and flossing are your best defense against plaque and tooth decay. Good habits and good techniques are necessary skills to protect your dental assets. We recommend that you brush twice daily, but ideally three times a day, and floss once daily. Our team will demonstrate the best techniques toward preventing tooth decay before it has a chance to begin.
